Like true Chicagoans Lauren and Trevor share a love of deep dish pizza and exploring iconic city spots with their dog Chelsea such as Lincoln Park; which is also where Trevor proposed! They love to hang out in Chicago together and try new restaurants with their friends, but they also enjoy spending time at home drinking red wine and watching The Office.
The couple met while attending the University of Iowa and after running into each other a few times through mutual friends Trevor finally worked up the courage to ask Lauren out. Trevor’s first impression of Lauren was that she was so beautiful; so it took him a few hours to get up the nerve to talk to her. Lauren was so excited because she had been seen Trevor a few times before and thought he was so cute. They went on their first date right before Christmas break and then didn’t see each other for over a month, but then immediately started dating soon after they returned to school. Both knew early on in their relationship that it was meant to be. Some words that they use to describe each other are kind, selfless, and compassionate proving that they only thing more undeniable than Trevor and Lauren’s love for each other, is their mutual love of Chicago.
Although they are not having their wedding in Chicago it was important to Lauren and Trevor to capture their love story engagement session with the picturesque skyline of the city that means so much to them. From stolen kisses on the river to strolling on the lakefront this shoot encompassed a real classy and elegant Chicago romance. We can’t wait for their wedding in June and their reception at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts.
